Directed by Richard Gaudio & Douglas C. Taplin  - 2005

Shredded is about a group of teenage boys who want to transform their
bodies so they become "shredded" like the muscle-filled bodies of their
media heroes. The film reveals the risks they're willing to take to achieve
the ideal male shape, exploring supplement use and the temptations of
steroids. With frank honesty, the boys relate their experiences, desires
and motivations to the audience, who must draw their own conclusions.

This documentary is designed to provoke discussion among teenagers
- both boys and girls - about body image and where lines should be
drawn between healthy and dangerous behaviour.

Produced by the
National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
